Memorial day serves as a reminder of the men and women who died in duty serving our country. The holiday began after the American Civil War to commemorate the soldiers lost in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day extended to honor all Americans having died while in service for our country.
If you are looking for a way to give back, consider USA Cares.
USA Cares exists to help bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 military families with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. Assistance is focused on three main areas:
– Removing the financial barriers that prevent veterans from receiving treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury. This program is saving the lives of veterans and restoring families.
– Removing the financial barriers that prevent veterans from securing employment.
– Providing emergence family services to veterans and active duty service members who sustain a significant reduction in pay because of their service.
